that barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew that if they sold everyone this idea, that they'll lose their health insurance that it would get replaced but a plan that was double or triple what they were paying then it would never have passed. they lied because if they were to tell the american people the truth that would have never happened. that's the bottom line. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is because for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believed that the end justifies the means. so their means are good. they have good intentions. and yes, we need a better health care system in this country, hands down. and you know me, sean. i'm a conservative. i believe we need health care reform. we need insurance reform that's coupled with tort reform. we need major change. and people are afraid of change -- >> we also have a free market. >> we've got to sell this hard. >> senator, you've lived this life. >> let me tell you. i've lived it, been it. and i've abused it as well. this was one of the great

president obama of selling affordable care act to the american people as a lie. >> and the centerpiece of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again, fundamental to his plan was the right to keep their own insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. >> he criticized the sloppy rollout of the exchanges online, and rejected the president's praise of the health care reform law, and he said he passed a similar one in massachusetts. >> in massachusetts we phased in the requirements so that there was a slow rollout, and that way you can test the systems as you went along to make sure there would not be glitches and perhaps the most important lesson the president, i think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the american people the truth. >> meanwhile, senior white house correspondent said the president did keep his white house and pointed the finger at insurance companies. >> if the president didn't intend to keep his promise, why would he go out of his way to make a provision. if your plan has been downgraded or cancelled, you can't. >> and steve, we heard fr
remains under fire because of president obama's promise that if americans liked their health insurance plan, they could keep it. but according to the associated press, at least 3.5 million americans have already been issued cancellation notices from their health insurance provid s providers. that number is likely to go up as data from half the states still remains unavailable. and there is a report white house officials debated the health care pledge back in 2009 in the likelihood that every american would in fact be able to keep their coverage. yesterday former white house adviser david axelrod defendeded the president on "meet the press". >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what you're going to keep your health care plan? was that bad practice? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there. >> the vast majority of americans, that statement will hold true for. for this small group, it hasn't. but the calamitous thing is that the website wasn't up because many of those people who have to transition will get better insurance for less m

support a diverse america. and even with the problems that obama care is having, most americans believe people ought to be able to get affordable health care. so, you know, in 30 years of covering politics, i have never seen a political party that time and time again embraces the things that most people do not want. it's a surefire losing strategy. >> over and over and over again, it seems they are doing that. in virginia, president obama talked about how voters remember actions of the extreme, joan. listen to this. >> if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, then i guarantee it's not in the rearview mirror of voters in virginia. they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern or move america forward. >> voters are going to remember, particularly virginia with so many government workers, but all over the country voters will remember tomorrow the shutdown that we just got over within the last 30 days. >> well, and ken cuccinelli, maybe he doesn't even want to win, reverend al. because, you know, he knows that the shutdown hurt his chances. he knows it wa

rosen and disastrous obama care website and no so affordable health care act americans have lost health care. the president had no idea death benefits would be denied and he was completely unaware that the nsa was illegally spying on american citizens and tapping phone calls of leaders from european allies all the way to the pope. this is like tim cook, ceo of apple didn't know apple had an a new ipad until he read it in the paper or boston red sox owner wasn't aware boston won the world series until he glanced at the sports page. or imagine roger, surprised to find out fox news boat all of the other news channel. but he didn't know that until he heard it on the huckabee show?

nondiscrimination act which would make serious strides towards bringing our lives into harmony with shared american values. the obama administration along with 55 democratic senators support it, however it would have many hurdles in the house where spieker john boehner opposes the measure. cost american jobs especially small business jobs. boehner and house republicans say that existing measures already provide the needed protection from discrimination. >> well, we just live to fight another day. it will pass eventually. the american people are changing. this country is changing. we are definitely tbkin becoming more inclusive. >> advocates say they are getting closer and closer to its passage. al jazeera new york. >>> millions of people head to the polls tomorrow for election day 2013. while not all of you have a ballot to cast, there are some key races. david shuster has more. david. >> in new jersey, republican incumbent governor chris christie, appears to be heading towards a landslide victory. poised to make huge inroads with women voters, latinos and african americans. poised to say he is the
it is. >> here it is obama care 2,000 pages. that what scares me on halloween american people vote for politicians who think it is good to micro manage life with stuff like this. this is awful. this kind of central planning reduces our choices and complicates life. there's a silver lining something i hadn't expected. the manhattan institute specializes in thhealthcare. he noticed that, too. parts of obama care by accident have done something good. possibly yes. which is? >> one of the things obama care does as we know attempts to set up these insurance exchanges where people can shop for coverage. plus it doesn't touch that much. it modestly increased the set of regulations in the employer based market. sum total of these effects is possibly to increase the number of people who shop for coverage on their own and have health savings accounts and catastrophic coverage which is ex pactly the kind of insurance the free market people said they always wanted to have. >> that makes sense. we should point out the old system wasn't a free market paradise. 8 out of 10 healthcare dollars were
is ahead for some americans who already have health insurance on the job. >> jeff: the obama administration is still struggling to fix the new healthcare web site and explain how new insurance programs work. with the vast majority of americans who already receive coverage through their employers are starting to make enrollment choices for next year, and some are seeing big changes. we're joined now by cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger. always good to see you. let's talk about the big companies first. what hangs are we seeing? >>. >> we're seeing higher premiums, not great news. we're also seeing increased costs and out of pocket expenses are going to start creeping in here. so as a result this is going to be a more expensive environment. many companies are starting to introduce something called a high deductible plan. and it's paired with a health savings account. this is kind of the way that people can limit their costs but you really have to be young and healthy to make that work for you. >> jeff: why are they doing these low cost plans, high deductible plans? >> the price of hea
've got president obama saying that firing americans for who they are is not eligible. on the huffing post he urged congress to pass it saying it's offensive, it's wrong and to stop. in the u.s., who you are and who you love should never be a fireable offense. so the gop is at a real crossroads here because this is not, as some people will level this is offering special protection to the lgbt community. basically what this is doing is saying homophobia is bs and you can't allow for it anymore. is the gop going to get on board with that because of the fact they're at a crossroads and pauft fact they're trying to reach out to millennials and engage an entire new sect of young republicans who think that lgbt rights are fair game, or do you think that they're going to miss a huge opportunity here? >> well, they are in a very difficult spot, right, because they want to broaden their appeal to young people and to different kinds of minorities, but yet they are in a little bit of a stranglehold of the conservatives and the tea party, so they are in a very tough political spot. i think ultimately
with dallas volunteers helping americans sign up for the program. obama care and online exchanges are playing a big role in tomorrow's gubernatorial race in virginia. you can bet we'll be talking about obama care in next year's midterms and 2016 presidential race and maybe even in 2028 when we're doing the show from outer pace. from that we start with perry bac bacon, who will be with us when we're doing the show from outer space. i got a nice e-mail breaking down how chris christie doing so very well with blacks in new jersey, suggests how he may do in 2016 nationally, we're talking about his getting 30% among blacks in new jersey. this is supposed to be a great number for the gop, but it is largely blacks -- because of decades of problem. ari will dig into that. i want to dig into how latinos will fare and how they'll fare with white voters. they've been doing really badly with latinos for several years now and partly the immigration thing will chase more away further. but with white folks, they've been doing extremely well. when he have a white candidate, like, say, hillary, it will be dif
in the last couple of years when it comes to the rights of gay americans. we saw president obama not too long before the election last year change his personal view on gay marriage on same-sex marriage. he'd been in favor of civil unions as he came into office and he personally decided to support same sex marriage. we've also seen recently the repeal of don't ask don't tell. and with the obama administration stopping its enforcement of that federal same-sex marriage ban once the supreme court this year overruled that ban, we're now seeing same-sex couples a lot of them get married so that they can enjoy the federal benefits that traditional couples receive, as well. >> i know that apple ceo tim cook is also weighing in on this, he's pushing the senate to vote for the legislation. but do you think it will? >> reporter: actually the expectation, and let me just tell you this, we just got notice from dean heller, a senator from nevada, a republican, who is saying that he will support it and that actually gives this measure 60 votes. so it is appearing that it is increasingly likely that this wil
is taking aim at some consider president obama's broken campaign promise that americans who like their health insurance can keep it. >> whether you like the model of obamacare or not the fact that the president sold it on basis that was not true, has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. jon: talk about it with bob cusack, the managing editor of "the hill." it is interesting to watch the spin in washington. president obama could not have been more clear, bob, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. if you like your doctor, you can keep him. said that over and over and over again. >> yeah. that's right. i mean, remember a the time the democrats, it was tough getting the votes. so they had to make a lot of promises. this one was clearly broken the way the president said it. 3.5 million people have now lost their plans. obviously some will get new plans but some of them, we've seen anecdotes they liked their plan even though it was not a cadillac plan and were not playing -- paying a lot per month. we don't know the what enrollment
and bob beckle and this is "the five." the obama care rollout continues to disappoint at every turn. something peggy noonan spoke about yesterday. >> there's nothing to say about obama care except from the moment the site debuted straight through to the point that the american people day by day started learning how obama care was changing their lives and canceling their coverage and changing it, it has just been a
the white house's credibility around the botched rollout of president obama's health care law. a former aide acknowledges, there was a disagreement inside the white house over whether americans could keep their current health care plans. >> i don't recall significant discussions around some of the verbiage on this -- >> do you agree it was a wrong move? >> certainly. >> reporter: yet at the white house, give successor jay carney would not acknowledge there had been a debate. >> it was not a point of debate that i participated in. >> reporter: as top white house advisers and allies continue to come up with new ways to insist the president was not wrong. >> if you had a plan before the affordable care act, you can keep it. >> reporter: in what amounts to a blame game for the insurance industry. >> insurance companies don't like the individual market as constructed. they see the future. that individual market is going away. they don't want to invest in it. the insurance companies are making that -- >> it's not the president. >> reporter: meanwhile, republican darrell issa released more internal
's on the plate. the reason that americans don't want it -- >> mike doyle says that obama care will save him him money because he won't have to pay for his son's health care any more. his son is a full-grown man. >> my kid is 33 years old. he is eligible for a subsidy. we browsed that sight, and he can get coverage for half of what he is paying now and that's good news for us because i think my wife is paying his premium, so i think we will save the money. >> wow, he has a 33-year-old son who is still paying his premium. i have a 33-year-old son, i have news for you, i'm not paying your premium. obama care is supposed to help people by the young and healthy paying for >> i would like to h you, go to my website tell me what you think. or sign up for my facebook page and follow me on twitter. you can find a link to that and more.

that and president obama and secretary kerry have substantial support from the american public from the penalize -- american allies. the saudi are on thin ice. they have very little public fort support -- public support in western urine. western europe. thank you for talking to us and taking on these issues today. >> egyptian president morsi appeared in public for the first time since being forced from office. he is in court being charged with the deaths of protestors outside of the presidential palace last year. >> the supporters of the deposed president mohammad morsi are outside of the police academy where the former leader is on trial. they say he was forced from office illegally and they demand that the charges against him be dropped. mohamed morsi is charged with incitiing the deaths of others. forces are on the streets of cairo to ensure that the trial goes ahead. public opinion about it is polarized. god will be on our side. the court will issue a verdict that will be for the sake of egypt and the egyptians to move forward. morsi was not fair at all. >> this trial has nothing to do with
of the american people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. he could know it by looking at massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. he could have learned those lessons and told the people the truth, but he didn't. he told people they could keep their plan. and, you know, it was nbc news that said, look, some 6 million people are going to lose their insurance. that's not some little number, that's 6 million american people. the comparison to massachusetts, though, really comes down to two major points. a lot of people don't have health insurance because they can't afford it so you have to have subsidies. that's what did you in massachusetts skpch massachusetts. and in order to make sure your risk pool is right, you havavav hav young and healthy people in it so that the people would be taken care of who are older and sicker. that's what you did. but here'
knows something about obama care from being from massachusetts. any other reasons? >> maybe because he's built businesses, corporations that hire tens of thousands of americans. but, you know, nancy passed the bill away from the fog of washington. pelosi doesn't take into account what's really going on around the country. she's going to go out and simply make the talking point. this is what the president wants her to do. this is what she's doing. so frankly just dismiss her. let's go back to what is happening just like the interview you just had. the interview you had was one on the numbers. when they talked about 5% of the population over 15 million people. if they are not served by obama care like promised, that's like 15 million people not served. >> let's go back to what romney said. was it too strong for him to say it's rotten, the rest of the three years of president obama? >> remains to be seen. i would say he's not been right about a lot of things. we'll leave it at that. the one thing he was not accurate about is where he said massachusetts works because it's a state plan. gov
did offer an apology, and she told the committee to hold her accountable for the obama care failure. while insisting that the president did not lie when he repeatedly told americans they could keep their health care insurance if they liked it. but when pressed on whether the president was ultimately responsible for the law's failures, she got visibly agitated, tersely saying, quote, whatever. yes. he is the president. fox news chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel on capitol hill tonight with our report. >> reporter: lou, kathleen sebelius defended the rollout of the president's health care law but said ultimately she is accountable. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of so let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> reporter: chairman fred upton accused sebelius and others of false advertising prior to the launch. >> over the months leading up to october 1 launch, the secretary and her colleagues at hhs repeatedly looked us in the eye and testified that everything was on track. >>
is rotting president obama's second term. >> perhaps the most important lesson the president, i think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the american people the truth. and when he told the american people that you can keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again. >> right. >> he wasn't telling the truth. >> but governor, on that point -- >> i think that fundamental dishonesty has put in peril the foundation of his second term. >> rim romney responded to reports that he dumped running mate chris christie because of contention, >> he dismissed the notion saying the governor provided health records and there were no concerns. >>> all right, so perhaps you saw us on sunday, as the spectacular solar eclipse which was visible for about 30 minutes right after sunrise in the eastern united states. this was a rare hybrid which happens only once in 160 years. it began as an annual ring of fire eclipse. that shifted to a total eclipse. dylan dreyer joins us. did you see it? >> i didn't. it was cloudy in new york, so even if i knew it was happening,
is unworthy of americans and more. as you as the american remains reluctant to revisit the past two years have passed since the us withdrew its forces from iraq in any security gains that obama then proclaimed have now been reversed. bombings in iraq and increased in al qaeda rejui muslim insurgents who had been maintained during the us occupation the last out the americans left angered over widespread belief that students have been sidelined by rex shiite led government violence has escalated with the united nations saying that nine hundred and seventy nine iraqis were killed last month alone. demonstrators have taken to the streets of cairo to force their anger over the suspension of its popular political satire program held her and the tv networks cbc announced the program hosted by comedian this and use it who was known as the jon stewart egypt will be taken off air due to its violation of editorial policy it's those that gathered in cairo to the show was being censored poking fun at defence minister general abdel fatah occ. we know a lot of fun and we need today to reject what happen
americans are aware of obama care, not that many have tried to sign up for coverage. let's get out to bertha coombs. is this a lack of interest or many people can't get online to sign up? >> it's hard to say but i would imagine the technology problems certainly are adding to this. the survey by the commonwealth fund finds that 17% of americans who are potentially eligible for coverage under the affordable care act, known as obama care, have visited the new health insurance exchanges to enroll in a plan, either by mail, phone orion line. the commonwealth fund is a private foundation that supports independent research on health care reform. the poll was conducted between october 9th and october 27th right in the thick of all of the problems that we've been seeing with the website. 60% of people say they are aware of the marketplaces. that's up from about 1/3 in a survey done earlier this year. one in five adults who visited an exchange say they enrolled in a health plan. those who didn't say they weren't sure they could afford it or were still deciding or had technical difficulties with the si

of obama care's website, representative david mckinley of west virginia knew what he wanted. >> i haven't heard one of you apologize to the american public. are apologies not in order? i've just -- i've not heard the words "i'm sorry" or "i apologize." i don't understand why there's not an apology. but, i apologize. i haven't heard that from any one of the four of you. >> he got it. >> i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. >> you deserve better. i apologize. >> considerate, appropriate, and futile. the apology didn't squelch the partisan tirades or quench the republican thirst for revenge, their outrage that the affordable care act, that is, obama care, even got this far. but it did provoke some of us to wonder, isn't it fair to also expect at least a tiny bit of remorse, just a morsel of apology, from the republicans? as npr's astute health care reporter julie rovner reminded us recently. >> when it became clear that hhs would need more money to build the federal exchange than had been allocated in the original law, republicans in congress ref

with a sharp critique of the president, for promising americans they'd be able to keep their insurance. >> and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second material. second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> i want to bring in abc news political director rick klein now. no one wants to relive that campaign of a year ago, but romney went further, saying the president wasn't telling the truth. the irony, the president was just in boston, wasn't he, thinking this would be welcoming territory for this health care plan. >> that's right. that's what makes this a biting critique. it is that context. just a few days ago, president obama went to romney's home state, the very place romney signed his own health care law, to argue that governor romney's plan worked. but romney's making clear, he will not let romney care be used to bail out obama care, whether or not he was the inspiration for it. >> flashbacks. making me sweat all over again. rick klein tonight, thank you. >>> overs

(laughter) merkel should be flattered. someone looked at the chancellor of germany and said "i'd tap that." (cheers and applause) besides, we aren't even doing it, right, white house spokesman jay carney? >> i can tell you that the president assures the chancellor that the united states is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor. >> stephen: kay? (laughter) we are not and will not that takes care of the present and the future and there's no other time periodic think of. >> the u.s. has been listening to merkel's cell phone since 2002. >> stephen: oh, the past? who cares! (laughter) you know what they say about those who forget hisly. i don't and i'm pretty happy about it. (laug
to an unnamed senior u.s. official, obama didn't know his own nsa was spying on angela merkel and other american allies. >> the white house says the president did not know merkel's phone was targeted. >> is it conceivable? is it believable that the president would not know about surveillance of a head of state of a close american ally? >> then it was nbz's lisa meyers reporting on what the administration knew three years ago about the president's promise. you heard it over and over that those who liked their insurance could keep their plan. >> when you add those two parts together, you get more than 40% to 730% of folks in the individual market cannot keep their policies even if they want to and the administration knew that. >> obama for his part is saying some critics of the program are being grossly misleading. tim carney from the washington examiner and juan williams, a columnist for the hill and lauren ashburn are joining us. lauren, why are the media engaging this? >> i think president obama has lost the benefit of the doubt with the washington media and it started when the department of ju
